I realized that my pants inventory is rather low, so I thought I’d sew up a couple pairs. I got some sturdy Supplex nylon at Rose City Textiles and attempted to mimic those sporty outdoorsy pants like they have at REI or in the Athleta catalog. I used a McCall’s pants pattern that I’ve used several times now (I tend to stick to standards) but added contrasting stitching and back pockets:
They’re a little baggy in the legs, and whoah, they make my butt look pretty humongous in that shot, but they are pretty comfy and rugged, and I don’t think anyone’s taking sneak peeks at my rear anyway. On to the khaki pair!
